This classic townhome at 518 S Payne Street is located in the Southwest Quadrant of historic Old Town. This charming area is close to restaurants, shops, parks, yoga studios, salons, Whole Foods, and more. If commuting, it is convenient to King Street Metro and to the beltway. Open the wrought iron gate to access a well-maintained “courtyard” setting with a brick walkway that directs all to the new front door. Step over the threshold to behold an open living/dining room layout with warm wood floors, fresh neutral paint colors, crisp crown molding, and recessed lighting. The large front window bathes the space in natural light. The eat-in kitchen showcases new quartz countertops, a new refrigerator, and new dishwasher, ample cabinet storage, a gas range, and walkout access to the backyard. Just beyond the kitchen is a hallway with custom shelves that leads to an updated half-bath or entry down to the lower level. The finished lower level is elevated by new floors and will become the perfect space to set up as a family room to kick back and relax. A large laundry room provides lots of storage space/options, as well as walk-up access to the backyard. The upper level is comprised of three comfortable bedrooms, all with new closet doors, that share a wonderfully renovated bathroom with a skylight. Outdoor space is highly coveted these days, and the private fenced backyard will be a wonderful retreat to entertain or let your four-legged friends run free safely. And the storage shed delivers an opportunity to stash away neatly any home improvement or lawn care items. All major systems (HVAC, Roof, HWH, Furnace, Windows) are under 10 years old. Don’t miss the opportunity!
